Liked: Central LocationRelatively cheap in comparison to other Auckland hostelsHelpful and friendly staffUseful luggage storage room Good washing machines and tumble driers

Disliked: Very busy and untidy dorm rooms almost nowhere left to store luggage. Dorm rooms were very hot and lacked ventilation, location was near a busy road and so with open windows caused a really poor nights sleep.No curfew on lighting in the dorm so people coming at all times of the day and night disturbing sleep.Poor quality shower rooms and toilets, one shower didn't have a door, and one shower room didn't have a mirror.The quality of the bunk beds was pretty poor and it was virtually impossible to get to the top bunk without waking the person on the lower bunk with shaking and noise.Not a particularly friendly hostel, some of the guests seemed to be there for longer stays and maybe even worked for board giving the place a strange atmosphere that I wouldn't say was the friendliest. My stay was only two days and this definitely a personal point, based on other hostels I have stayed in such as Guess House in Seminyak, Reggae Mansion in KL and ABC Premium in Singapore I would say Frienz was the most difficult to relax in and make friends.

Liked: Great location!! Right in the centre of CBD. Staff were very friendly and use of free computers was excellent. Although internet on them was slow.

Disliked: Bathrooms weren't very clean and shower doors were broken. There were times that we had to use bathrooms on other floors as the one on our floor was leaking.
